Mandy Moore picked up some sweets from a local bakery in LA looking cool as ever in this Current/Elliott shearling leather jacket ($919), cuffed jeans, a gray tee, and a black bucket bag. But the cool factor didn't stop there; on her feet Mandy sported these rad Jeffrey Campbell snake sneakers ($135) and on her eyes clear shades. With Fall here, we can't think of more amazing statement pieces to add to your wardrobe than Mandy's exact jacket and sneakers. Wear them together like the singer did or mix and match them with pieces you already own.
Alexa Chung played with prints rocking a lace overlay dress with a leopard jacket at the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show in NYC. While we loved seeing the VS angels working their LBDs at the afterparty, what really caught our eye was Alexa's feminine and wild combo, which she topped with a black leather and wool coat. The British trendsetter polished off her chic style with patent leather ankle boots, a chain-strap Chanel bag, and bold red lip. Get inspired by Alexa's dynamic pairing and work a ladylike lace dress with a leopard blazer or cardigan, tough leather panel coat, and patent leather ankle boots.
Getting your office attire just right is harder than merely throwing on the nearest pencil skirt and blouse. It's a balancing act of what looks good, what feels good, and quite honestly, what says, "I take my job seriously." We know the dress code varies depending on where you clock in, but one thing's for sure: you want to look polished and professional, and all without fading into mundane territory. Today's outfit solution comes to you courtesy of Caroline Issa's sophisticated take on layering. Her gray double-breasted vest dress hits below the knee so there's no question of indecency. More than that though, it's a classic Fall piece that when paired with her crisp white Peter Pan-collared top, provides a chic-meets-scholarly tone. Loud colors don't always bode well in the work space, but we're pretty sure you can get away with a pop of red via one slick skinny belt. The rest of the equation comes down to accessorizing, and that's a game-time decision to be made by you. We followed suit on her edgier cuffs, black shoulder bag, and metal cap-toe pumps, but if you need to take it down a notch, you can't go wrong with black pumps (of a reasonable height) and minimalist jewelry. Now that the ensemble agenda is set, you can shop the key pieces below.
Clockwise from top left: Lareida Josephine Shirt ($239), J.Crew Little Edie Purse ($168), Calvin Klein Sleeveless Boucle Utility Vest ($125), Guess by Marciano Ina Pump ($178), BCBG Max Azria Skinny Leather Belt ($38), House of Harlow 1960 Rocky Mountain Cuff ($109), Low Luv x Erin Wasson Key Wrap Cuff Bracelet ($105), Dannijo Tate Cuff Bracelet ($545)
While we spend years curating the perfect wardrobe we can often overlook its foundation — our underwear drawer. Fact of the matter is, having the right underwear, bras, and slips can change the way we feel in our clothes, giving us the confidence and the coverage we need to wear everything from our everyday t-shirts to our evening dresses right. So, while we always encourage shopping for sweet and sexy lingerie, here we're cutting right to the chase with the 11 essential pieces no woman should be without. We've narrowed it down to the best bras, sculpting shorts, and slips all inside — read on for a little underwear 101, then keep clicking to shop the pieces you need.
- Great underwear really is a worthy investment — as the first layer of your look, it can help smooth and sculpt and help you look and feel better in everything you own.
- You'll notice too that a lot of the pieces we selected are nude; that's because nude pieces are best with sheer clothing — even white underneath a white dress can show through, while nude will be the most discreet.
- Look for multipurpose undergarments. Why buy four different bras when you can invest in one convertible bra that you can change up four ways depending on your needs.
Taylor Swift popped up in Paris looking appropriately Parisian chic in a black and white look — score her exact Kate Spade New York colorblock dress ($398) here. The singer then completed her European style with black tights, black suede pumps, a cute paper plane necklace, and stud earrings. What we love most about Taylor's new dress is that it looks like she layered a strapless black dress over a white tee. We can't get enough of the girlie flowy skirt either. Dress it up with tights and pumps like the singer did or dress it down with ballet flats.

At the star-studded opening of Bodo's Schloss in London, Gwyneth Paltrow had us gawking at her feet. That's because she wore a pair of fabulous black satin fringe sandals that moved energetically as she exited the restaurant. Up top, the actress covered up in a black coat and black satin cropped trousers, then accessorized via a bevy of bracelets. Gwyneth's latest look proves the benefit of adding fringe to your feet — it has the power to really transform your look from simple to simply standout. Inspired by Gwyneth, shop our favorite black fringe sandals to inject major sass into all your nighttime ensembles.
Kourtney Kardashian hit a chic high note in green leather Gabby shorts and a black fur-collar coat while leaving The Dorchester hotel in London. Kourtney's favorite textured bottoms made an appearance earlier this month when she paired them with a printed blouse and bright orange tote, but we are equally smitten with this high-fashion look. The brunette beauty styled her textured separates with a sheer black blouse, opaque tights, and black leather ankle boots, then accessorized with a topknot bun, sparkling diamond studs, and her trusty Hermes tote. Re-create this sexy style with these green leather American Retro shorts ($388), a black fur coat, sheer black blouse, and a structured leather tote for your next dinner date.
